About

Hello there!

My name is Ash Oldfield and I have been writing Fantasy fiction and Young Adult novels since 2012, when I quit my full time job as a Science teacher, working part time instead, so I could focus my energies on my dream of becoming an author. I have two novels published so far and have my third novel in the safe hands of my beta readers.

Why do I need a Patreon?

I am getting to the point in my career where I need more time. I have already achieved more than I had ever thought possible, and this has encouraged me to try to take that next step. Teaching is a draining profession and leaves me with very little energy left to write. With enough patrons I can write full time without the need to teach. I'm hoping I can even have more time to record more episodes of my podcast about reading and writing, The Book Stash. Listeners gave me lots of positive feedback and reviewed it generously, but it takes a lot of time to research, record and edit episodes, time I just do not have right now.

What's in it for you?
I love teaching, despite what I wrote earlier. I would love to share what I have learned about writing with my patrons. I will provide behind-the-scenes glimpses into the writing, editing and publishing process, I will regale you all with facts I have learned while researching and, best of all, I will share photos with you of my beloved pets. No writer is complete without a cat, and I am doubly complete with two cats. Triplely (?) complete with a dog, and quaternally (???) complete with a rabbit. There's plenty of floof there to go around. Oh, and I will share snippets of my stories with the higher-tier patrons.
